I'm interested in meaningful discussion

My background is in software development, with a BSE/MSE in Computer Science. I previously worked as a software engineer at some of the biggest international software companies In addition to running my own IT firm, I consult with tech companies on their engineering hiring process and with start-ups to help them through acquisition interviews.

Meet successful kid coder. A silicon valley star.

Drop file here to send
10-year-old Samaira Mehta has become a kid coder to watch in Silicon Valley.
When she was just 8, she built a board game called CoderBunnyz to help teach other kids how to code.
The game earned her national recognition and she began holding workshops for kids, many of them at Google.
Google was so impressed it booked her as a keynote speaker for a local event and told her she should consider working for them when she grows up. Samaira Mehta is a 10-year-old girl growing up in Silicon Valley who has quietly attracted an almost cult-like following because of her work as a programmer.

She's the founder and CEO of a company called CoderBunnyz that's earned national media recognition and landed her speaker roles at nearly a dozen Valley conferences (and counting).

It all started when she was just 8 and created a board game called CoderBunnyz to help teach other kids how to code. She'd been coding since she was 6.https://www.businessinsider.com/10-year-old-coder-so-successful-now-a-valley-sensation-2018-10?%20utm_content=bufferd6665&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer-ti

How amazing is this child? To think that she's not even a teenager yet, but she's already doing such great things! Imagine turning down an opportunity to work for Google, that's an opportunity some can only dream of.

What are your thoughts on this? Is Samaira being overglorified?

“A coding (descendent) in the making” does not make sense...

She has a lot of talent, no doubt. But this may not be the most holistically fulfilling way of experiencing childhood.

Wonderful. Another of the world's finest young minds going to code banner ads and overlays and popular ads for products made by average minds and bought by people with below average shopping skills.

Really getting tired of seeing"coders" glorified this way! If you want to praise someone praise the creators - not the users.
